Skyview (5824) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2008
Picked up a single 22-oz bottle at Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington. Pours a hazy dark orange amber brew with an average sized beige head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and off-white ring with some nice lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, raisin, a touch of mint, and dark pitted fruits. Taste is full bodied, light carbonated with flavors of caramel malt, some citrus and zest, apricots, and some dark fruits. Finish has a nice balance of semi-sweet and bitterness that quickly changes to a mild bitterness that lingers after the finish. The extra few month of aging did some nice work to this American Ale.

Bottle. Pine, apricot & resin hop aroma. Amber, tanned creamy head. Fruity (apples, peaches) base, plentifull hops, somewhat flat middle, hop-flower sparkles, ends on a oily resin note. Oily mouthfeel. Pine aftertaste.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Thanks to Brewdad for giving me a chance to try this. Poured a deep orange color into the glass. Aroma was bitey hops, dough and fruit, with a little mint as well. Taste was big hops, nice herbal character, ripe fruit, tangerine, mint, dough and spice. this was nice, and a little different than most.

Honey lemon and pine in the nose. Hopped to Asgaard and back! And then some in the finish! Great lacing like all of their drafts.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 29, 2008
Pours a lovely pale-strawberry amber with minimal head & lacing. Lovely fresh bread aroma, sweet and lightly buttery, more reminiscent of an early spring evening than the depths of winter. Tastes delightfully bitter, the Goldings are definitely apparent and blend well with the other more citrus-like hops. Definite orange taste but lots of astringent malt and hop bitterness wash over like a bitter tea, never quite disappearing into the warming finish. Body is a tad thin but reasonable carbonation. This straddles a fine line between barleywine and ASA - I like it a lot! A surprise find at Six Mile in Victoria, B.C.

Dogbrick (12233) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Sample at the Pike Street location. This beer pours a clear orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Spicy aroma with notes of malt and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, honey and sweet spices, followed by mild hops and fruit. The finish is sweet and spiced with light hops and citrus aftertaste. Decent all around.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle (22oz). Shared with blankboy, jerc, mabel and tupalev - bottle courtesy of J&K. Hazy amber, average off-white head. Sweet, mildly leafy aroma, lightly spicy. Sweet apricot malt balanced by very bitter floral hops (rosehips), a bit of a boozy sting to the tail. Light bodied, astringent with a long pungently bitter finish and linger - oddly floral, but I liked it a lot.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle shared with Jerc, Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Mabel, courtesy of Jerc Mabel. Strong sweet caramel aroma. Medium orange, small white head. Great taste - lots of hops, really malty, some sort of very interesting fruit/fruitiness. Complex and interesting, it is not winter, but I can see why this would make a good winter warmer.

Bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of mabel. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with an average size diminishing white head. Aroma of caramel malt, sweetness and light floral hops. Flavour of caramel malt and a touch of fruit. Long bitter finish. Average bodied. Meh, nothing wrong with this but somewhat dull stuff.
